Same old life. also it's hot here

Well, no one else is updating this blog. So...

What has life been like in Cambridge, MA lately? Hot, hot, and hot.
(yay living in housing with AC!)

Thus, I have been spending a lot of time at work.

I am start-trolling this summer, with two of my friends, one from middle school and one from MIT.

I have to put up with all kinds of stuff from those two. All I can say is it's at least better than a real job where I can't take 30 minute naps in the middle of the day at my desk sandwiched between two people.
(j/k! they are awesome people. I wasn't kidding about the napping though :D)

Cappie, at the Martin Trust Center workspace, with v2 of our arm (now horizontal!)
Hanna, at the MITERS workspace, with v1 of our arm (still vertical), working on CADing v2
A productive day at work scribbling on paper all day. XD;
The robot arm says "Hi" to all you all!

occasional BBQ where they feed us fooood. 
Oh gosh the food. They feed us a few times a week and it is excellent. I have also discovered the joy of the food trucks and also beantown taquiera. This summer is eat-out bonanza or something, because Hanna keeps giving me really strong stares when I do my usual dry cereal-instant noodle combination. >.> but my guilt at spending money on eating out instead of spending projects means I will probably find some other solution soon, since I don't think I can get rid of my guilt. (any advice, fellow putzen, on that?)

Oh the other thing I am doing is helping out with a go-kart class. The students are from singapore and the other day they bought a giant lobster instead of a cake for one of the student's birthdays:

What? What were they thinking? I don't even.

look at their pretty sketches!
I am excited to see how all their go-karts turn out. :3

Oh also I went to help staff swapfest:

And helped a tiny bit with the reorganization of MITERS. The back right corner used to be a loft with spare stock and now has awesome shelving we crufted from the physics department.

so... not clean! but getting there :3 and look, CNC mill in foreground!
Yea so my life actually has been a lot of same old, same old. Maybe someday soon I will do more sightseeing around Boston.
